It’s not unfair to say that the last few World Rally Championship events have been a struggle for Ott Tänak and M-Sport Ford.
The Estonian profited from his own perseverance to bank a fourth place on Acropolis Rally Greece earlier this month, but the last time he was genuinely in the fight for victory was all the way back in April on Croatia Rally.
So what will Rally Chile bring?
That’s one of just many talking points on this week’s Rally Chile preview edition of SPIN, The Rally Pod.
Join Colin Clark, David Evans, George Donaldson and Luke Barry as they discuss Tänak’s prospects, as well as what Elfyn Evans needs to do to keep his WRC title hopes alive and more generally what we can expect from the first trip to Chile in four years.
